Smile Just painted two hoods and a spoiler

Hello everyone, I cannot wait until summer.

I just finished painting the manta stripes on. I used chevy hugger orange. I decided that would look best with the tan top on the convertible. Now I just have to decide on the hood I want to use. I pick both (GM) hoods up with some damage. So some time and money for supplies and I have two hoods. I plan to sell the one I do not use or paint it with a different color manta stripe. I painted a fake SS spoiler for the z too. I cannot decide if I like it. I painted the underside the same orange as the manta on the hoods.

Thanks guys, they are not perfect but they turned out ok. I have some orange peel and other little things that I know are there. But over all I am really happy how they turned out.

That's why they make sandpaper and a rotary.

Looks really good.
